CE1028 Wind Engineering Syllabus

CE1028 WIND ENGINEERING 3 0 0 100


OBJECTIVE
At the end of this course the student should be able to appreciate the forces generated on structures due to normal wind as well as gusts. He should also be able to analyse the dynamic effects created by these wind forces.

1. INTRODUCTION 9
Terminology – Wind Data – Gust factor and its determination - Wind speed variation with height
– Shape factor – Aspect ratio – Drag and lift.

2. EFFECT OF WIND ON STRUCTURES 9
Static effect – Dynamic effect – Interference effects (concept only) – Rigid structure – Aeroelastic structure (concept only).

3. EFFECT ON TYPICAL STRUCTURES 9
Tail buildings – Low rise buildings – Roof and cladding – Chimneys, towers and bridges.

4. APPLICATION TO DESIGN 9
Design forces on multistorey building, towers and roof trusses.

5. INTRODUCTION TO WIND TUNNEL 9
Types of models (Principles only) – Basic considerations – Examples of tests and their use.
